So much, so so much of being here reminds me of all the fun adventures I went on as a kid! Today my neighbor offered to give me a ride in his big ole dump truck, just like days from my childhood when my dad would let me ride in his giant skid loader! It was SO loud, but sometimes that's the price you pay for free rides.

Almost all of my students (225) had the chance to learn about and see cells in a microscope! For most, this was the first time seeing such a thing outside of a book. I'm happy that my school has a fully stocked lab with 10 microscopes, compared to last year when I only had one to work with. They were all so curious and excited to learn! 🔬🔎 #peacecorps #liberia #peacecorpsliberia #howiseepc #educate #biology
Yesterday was a pretty great day! Started the morning off by getting in a really great workout, had a great meeting with my adultos mayores group, and then I finally (after waiting over a month) had a meeting with the most influential people in my community to talk about my CASA findings and the opportunities for work. They listened contently and actively engaged in discussions regarding the community's strengths and challenges. Here's to hoping we can finally get things rolling! #peacecorps #peacecorpscr #peacecorpscostarica #peacecorpsvolunteer #costarica #zonasur #centralamerica #desarrollointegral #nosvamos #opportunityofalifetime #oportunidades #letsdothisthang
october has been our busiest month of service (which after 14 months being in our community, we are welcoming the business with open arms). It is so amazing to watch projects start to take shape and become a reality. AND THIS WEEKEND WAS ONE OF THE BEST! we starting preparing for this library one year ago, and this weekend we took an old classroom and COMPLETELY transformed it into the most beautiful library space!!! many thanks and gratitude to the wonderful @yeboartreach for making this dream a reality. we spent the weekend painting alongside teachers who have been dreaming about having a library at the school for many many years. we are so thankful we get to work alongside people who have the passion and drive to create opportunities for the youth of our community. PLUUUS today we picked up our 1,000+ books thanks to @booksforafrica, to fill our beautiful library. So yeah, we're pretty stoked. next up: shelving, and library set up!
So this year on my birthday for the first time I didn't take loads of pictures. I ended up with just this one of my babusa and I. And honestly that's perfect. I am so grateful for her and my entire host family. Who celebrated my 26th birthday with me and surprised me with balloons and presents and so much love! I don't know where I would be without this amazing women and our family! 😘❤️🇺🇦 #26neverlookedsogood #octobergirl #моясімя @aleksandra_ilyevskaya @shypilovanatalya
My little #rescuekitten. After two weeks of food, a few baths and medicine, she’s happy, healthier, and playful. Bonus I found her a permanent home so she can have a good life. I can’t save them all but at least I saved her. #animallove #kittensofinstagram #peacecorps #peacecorpsmoldova #peacecorpspets #saveanimalslives
